Respect conference votes to support Coalition of Resistance

Liam Macuaid reports the extremely welcome news that yesterday's annual national conference of Respect voted for affiliation to Coalition of Resistance. Also see Liam's post for his account of why Socialist Resistance, of which he is a member, has decided to withdraw from Respect (it concerns a completely unrelated issue).

The conference, Liam reports, 'agreed “to support to affiliate to the Coalition of Resistance and to encourage our branches to do the same. We further resolve to encourage Respect branches to support local anti-cuts campaigns and initiatives in their area.”

The founding conference of Coalition of Resistance is on Saturday 27 November in central London. It will help co-ordinate the growing opposition to the ConDem government's attacks on public services and the welfare state.
